10 years ago we were leaving Iceland after an incredible time there. Now we are going back with our bicycle to explore it differently.
Iceland is an amazing place, but it is a difficult one too, especially on a bike. The weather is harsh, the wind strong, the roads are tricky and bridges only exist on road #1! But Iceland is a magical place, it’s wild, it’s colourful, it’s warm and cold.
